Il Giardino

In 1989 Daniel Spoerri stepped down from his chair at the university in Munich, that is he resigned in favor of greater artistic freedom. Together with his wife Katharina Duwen he bought an approx. 40-acre tract of land in Tuscany. First the buildings were renovated, because the property had lain idle for 10 years. But soon thereafter Spoerri began to install several bronze sculptures on the property. One can see how all of this continued to develop on the web-site of the Giardino.
